If you have ANY other opportunities, avoid working here.
I gave everything I could to this place, asked to be paid fairly, and if I couldn't be paid fairly, at least have my nights and weekends back (since Applied obviously didn't value them as much as I did). Instead, I got ostracized and eventually laid off.
Applied seriously understaffs critical positions of need with the lowest bidders, expects miracles, then treats employees poorly when they don't happen, as if it's the employees' fault. I did my own job and the work of two other people for nearly a year, and everyone just expected me to forget about it. I got a nominal promotion with nowhere near a proportionate raise, while I saw executives get paid crazy amounts for pretty much no-show jobs, and give all their friends equally cushy jobs for equally crazy salaries and perks. I also saw rules and policies that were supposed to apply to everyone routinely flouted by executives and lifers, but you can bet there were strictly (and selectively) enforced against lower-level employees.
Applied exceeded revenue expectations every quarter and every year I was there, but the gains were constantly eaten up by execs and shareholders. Non-management might get a couple hundred dollars in raises, along with more to do each time the company expanded, while the executives went away to "retreats" in Aspen, Sedona or other resorts, showed up in brand new luxury cars, had Applied foot the bill for huge second or third homes so they could be closer to offices they barely even visited, etc. But there was never any money for the rank-and-file, no matter how much they had just exhausted themselves and neglecting their social lives helping bring in all those millions.
I had thought I was the only one Applied treated this heartlessly, but these other reviews make it seem like it's standard operating procedure.
